Endpoint security is a key component of any cybersecurity program, but some organizations struggle with extending this program component of their program to cloud workloads. This recorded webcast provides guidance on the key issues to consider when choosing an endpoint security solution for integration on the AWS platform and suggests a process for making that important decision.

  • Key business, technical and operational considerations for cloud-based endpoint security
  • Key AWS-specific considerations for endpoint security that address the EDR, HIDS, antivirus/anti-malware and FIM functions
  • Process for making an informed decision about products to integrate
